About the Kalimba
Kalimba, also known as Mbira, is an ancient musical instrument originating in Africa. The body of a classical kalimba is made of wood, it has a number of flat metal keys connected to it. The instrument is played by plucking with the thumbs- this is why is it commonly referred to as ” Thumb Piano”.
The unique feature of this compact instrument is the powerful magnet that is located on its base allowing the sound to be amplified by any metallic object it is connected to.
1TONE’s fine-tuning gives the kalimba the warm and full sounds that are unique to it.
This petite Kalimba will fit inside your pocket giving you the opportunity to take your music everywhere you go. It’s sound is very gentle while played “unattached” so one can remain unnoticed in a time of need, but as soon it touches a random object, the sound becomes much stronger and can be heard from far away. Experiments with different materials will lead to various sound effects.
